Baltimore police cart off one of their wounded.

An assistant prosecutor from Wayne County, Michigan, resigned her post Friday after superiors discovered a Facebook message she put out saying the way to peace for Baltimore was to shoot the protesters.

“This afternoon, assistant prosecutor Teana Walsh called prosecutor Kym Worthy to announce that she is voluntarily resigning her position with the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office. Prosecutor Worthy has accepted her resignation,” assistant prosecutor Maria Miller said, the Detroit News reported.

She went on: “During her tenure in the office, Teana Walsh has been known for her great work ethic and her compassion for victims of crime and their families. Her [Facebook] post was up online briefly, and she immediately took it down. The post was completely out of character for her and certainly does not reflect the person that we know.”

The Facebook post, up April 27 but since removed, said this: “So I am watching the news in Baltimore and see larges swarms of people throwing bricks, etc. at police who are fleeing from their assaults … 15 in the hospital already.”

And then Walsh called for the shooting of protesters.

“Solution. Simple,” she wrote. “Shoot em. Period. End of discussion. I don’t care what causes the protesters to turn violent … what the ‘they did it because’ reason is … no way is this acceptable. Flipping disgusting.”

A Michigan group that seeks to hold government officials accountable saw the post and called for an investigation.
